Welcome to ‘Eat Out’
– the complete guide to dining out in Hebden Bridge. From the Humblest Cafe to the Grandest Restaurant, wherever you chose to eat out, we aim to cover every option in town (and around) that can be classed as a ‘sit-down’ establishment.
All our reviews are of actual visits by the editors. There’s no adverts and no sponsorship from the venues themselves, which means we are free to give an impartial and balanced report of what we find.
If you’d like to add your comments on the places we’ve covered, please write to us firstname.lastname@example.org – we’ll alert the eating house owners to your experience and publish anything we feel is fair comment.
If there’s a venue we’ve not covered yet the best thing to do is let them know that you think they should be in the guide – we do our best not to pressure the businesses into being included, so its far better if their customers do the persuading.
Some of the reviews are older than others – check the date of review to be sure the information is up-to-date.
If you’re a business that would like to be included, or to get an updated review please follow the link here and fill in the form for inclusion – or write to us using the contact form on the same page.
Eat Out in Hebden Bridge – you’d be daft not to!
Hebden Bridge is a quirky market town in West Yorkshire, in the foothills of the South Pennines, situated on the Pennine Way. It is easily accessible by public transport and by car. The M62 is less than 10 miles away while the mainline railway that runs between Leeds and Manchester (both less than an hour away) stops here.
Hebden Bridge has a population of approximately 4,500 – many of whom work in local businesses and run the impressive array of small independent shops, for which the town is justifiably famous. Plans by big business to colonise the town are vigorously opposed by residents’ groups and locals ask visitors to support the town’s independent shops and avoid using any national ‘chains’ that are trying to sneak in.
Hebden Bridge has a diverse musical and cultural scene and hosts many arts and other festivals throughout the year. The famous Trades Club hosts top-name entertainment from near and far and don’t forget the local independent Picture House – a vintage treat which boasts state-of-the-art sound and cinema in a nostalgic setting. Comprehensive local listings can be found on Hebweb.
